Can't come to us...we may be coming to you! We visit campuses across Ohio and select out-of-state locations. We also offer Skype sessions for pre-dental and pre-health groups that cannot travel to campus. Although we would like to visit everyone, our time is limited. Please check our Admissions Calendar to see if we are coming to campus near you or contact our office to arrange a visit or Skype session.
